Top Hat restaurant in London, inspired by the Monopoly game, opened its doors to its customers on 14 August. With a capacity of 70 people in the restaurant and 47 people in the bar area, the bright red booths in the bar were inspired by the color of the hotels of the game.
“So many of us have fond memories of playing the iconic game, be it with grandparents in our childhood or over drinks with friends in our adult lives,” Joseph Smith, the Top Hat’s director of food and beverages, said in a statement. “For some, the London version of the board game was their first experience of the capital. We’re excited to be part of the journey as London slowly comes back to life and to be opening a hospitality venture that celebrates the city and its wonderfully rich heritage.”
The Top Hat’s menu focuses on “quintessentially British” small plates, which include petite versions of pub classics like rump steak with parsnip mash and a mini-Yorkshire pudding, Wye Valley lamb, and “miniature fish and chips.”
